I'm new here, so I kinda wanted to post a new thread. :p

Anyway, in Gen. 5, what if certain Poke'balls worked depending on stats? Examples...

Attack Ball: Works better on Poke'mon with a high ATTACK stat.

Speedy Ball: Works better on Poke'mon with a high SPEED stat.

Sheild Ball: Works better on Poke'mon with a high DEFENCE stat.

And so on with the other stats. What do you think of these ideas?

...Master Balls CAN catch any pokemon, legendary or not. The trick of it is that there's only one of them (unless they win the Lottery), so people like using them on pokemon they'd only have one chance using instead of capturing something like a Pidgey. The reasoning is that if you have an unlimited supply of balls that can capture anything 100% of the time, then where's the challenge? There'd be no need to battle a pokemon to lower its health to a point where you could capture it, which is kind of the point...

I agree with zlxq3000 about cookies kill you's idea. Although if it existed Beldum would be my canditate.
We really don't need new Pokeballs. Maybe a Light Ball to have the opposite effect of a Dusk Ball or a Luck Ball with a random chance of catching Pokemon.

This should be in PokePolls, or in the create rename threade in there. there will probally be more type specific pokeballs in the future.
 
Charger Ball: If you catch an Electric type with this Pokeball, it will gather static in the air as you walk. Depending how how long you walk, when you release the Pokemon, it's Sp. Atk stat will either rise or sharply rise.

Focus Ball: If you catch a Pokemon with this Pokeball, it's accuracy will increase by 7%. It's secondary effect is to make the capture of Fighting-types easier.

Line Ball: This Pokeball will catch any Pokemon that you have caught before without fail, however it will fail to catch any other Pokemon.

maybe a lucky ball a pokemon has a catch rate ( like uxie for instince catch rate= 3 rattata = 255) it times that by a random number 0 - 5 so it would variate the catch rate

Hey, Shance, I liked you ideas! :)
Hope they do have those kind of Poke'balls in Gen. 5.

Demo ball- 4x catch rate on pokemon that know Selfdestruct or Explosion.
(needs name) ball- 8x catch rate if the wild pokemon is at a type disadvantage to your pokemon.
(needs name) ball- 8x catch rate if the wild pokemon is at a type advantage to your pokemon.
HP Ball- Simmilar to the heal ball only catch rate is effect by the remaining health. 100% or green- Poke'ball, 50% or Yellow- 4x ,10% or Red - 8x

They should make a Baby Pokéball, who works very well on baby Pokémons like Pichu, Cleffa or Igglybuff.

Hm, there are Dusk Balls and they work well at night, then they should make something like Morning balls.

Nice ideas,
How about flare ball, same idea as your charger ball

Weather ball-powers or decrease moves depending on the weather conditions

Luck ball- increases or decrease chance of luck based abilites like flame body, static, serene grace, poison point, etc...

Might be confusing, as the Light Ball is also an item that ups Pikachu's attacking stats.

Now THAT'S an idea!

Weather ball-powers or decrease moves depending on the weather conditions
Already a move with that name, so there could be confusion. Nice concept, though.

My ideas:

Suffer Ball: Enhanced catch rate on Pokemon without status conditions. If it fails to capture the target, inflicts either paralysis or sleep (never confusion, poison, or burn). Will never attempt to inflict a status that the target is immune to.

Mirror Ball: Enhanced catch rate if your Pokemon and the target are the same species, or if one of the Pokemon is a Ditto transformed into its opponent.

Burglar Ball: Enhanced catch rate if the target is holding an item. If it fails, it steals the item and gives it to your Pokemon. If your Pokemon is holding an item, it puts it into your bag. If your bag is full, the item vanishes.

Mix Ball: 100% catch rate, but only for Linoone. Otherwise functions like a Great Ball. Name taken from the Mix Elixer item from Mystery Dungeon Sky (like a Max Elixer but it only affects Linoone).

Soap Ball: Enhanced catch rate if Mud Sport is in play. If it fails, removes Mud Sport's effect.

Sponge Ball: Same as Soap Ball, but for Water Sport.

Grounder Ball: Enhanced catch rate if the last move the target used was Charge. If it fails, it removes any of Charge's effects from the opponent.

Persist Ball: If it fails, it tries to capture the target once more. Will not attempt to capture the target more than five times, and no fewer than 2. If your Pokemon has Skill Link, the Persist Ball will always make five capture attempts. Catch rate of Great Ball.

Dusquick Ball: Enhanced catch rate if used within the first 5 turns of a battle. Also enhanced catch rate if used anywhere at night, or in a cave or forest anytime. If both these conditions are met, the catch rate skyrockets.

Brittle Ball: If it fails, it breaks and the shards damage the target, taking away 1/2 of its current HP. If the target's HP is at 1, it will faint.

ArmageddonBall: If it fails, all Pokemon on the field will have all their stats minimized, including evasion and accuracy, and will be afflicted with Ghost-curse and Perish Song.

Mystic Ball: A strange Pokeball carved from rock found in an ancient relic from long ago. The in-game description will imply that its special effects are unknown. In reality, it has an enhanced catch rate for legendaries.

Rescue Ball: Vastly enhanced catch rate if any of the following afflictions apply to the target: Burn; Poison; Bad poison; Leech Seed; Perish Song; Confusion; Ghost-curse; 5 or less PP for all moves (thus in danger of Struggle); HP in red and in possession of a move with recoil; Has PP for Selfdestruct/Explosion/Roar/Whirlwind/Teleport, and nothing is in play to stop it. Catch rate is 100% if any of these apply to a wild shiny.

Super, super =D
There isn't really any need for new PokeBalls. But an opposite to the Dusk Ball would be cool. Sunrise Ball?
